well Jakob started at Brookwood Elementary School on thursday and i could hardly sleep the night before in anticipation of what was to come. i was sure that Jakob would be throwing up everywhere or kicking and screaming in disapproval of his new school. But to my surprise none of this occurred!!! I guess he really understood what was going on and all the sign language used to explain his new school and teachers and friends really worked. YEAH!! we got to school at 8am to do a temporary IEP for his 30 day trial period. he was a little hesitant to get out of the car, but soon followed me in and it was fine after that. we met the teachers, he helped get the other kids off the bus and we headed to the class room. he found a place just for him at the coloring table with all the other students and basically told me to go away. i was so relieved!! At carpool the teacher said he had a fabulous day and i could tell by the huge smile across his face that she was not lying.
